Morten and Anna meet in a nightclub and are driven into a love affair. Absurd, but recognisable situations are interwoven into a story with a predictable outcome. Expectations and role patterns are revealed and commented upon.

The stage image is inspired by the 1960es' pop art aesthetics. The production creates a new and distinct expression of strict psychological realism, choreographed dance, stand-up comedy and rhythmical, repetitive action sequences. Humour is always present, like an at times transparent varnish covering great vulnerability. Musically One night stand ranges from superficial pop and drum & bass to Gavin Bryars' symphonic contemporary compositions.
